Kaur shared the apartment with Bolton during her stay in England during her debut season with Lancashire Thunder at the Kia Super League. The cricketer said that she would wait till 10 am for breakfast for the eateries to open while Bolton would make her own breakfast.
After some time, Bolton realised she couldn’t cook breakfast anymore. Hence, she taught Kaur a few dishes involving eggs. Kaur opined that it was really nice of Bolton to teach her a few recipes.
On her favourite dish, she said, “The dal that’s cooked at home is unmatchable, so that would be my pick for the best dish from the Bhullar household.”
Kaur currently stands at 2186 runs in 114 T20I matches with six half-centuries and a ton. Though she hasn’t been in the best of forms in recent times. This is because Kaur failed to get going in the one-off India vs England 2021 Test as she registered scores of 4 and 8.
